Trump blames the refueling of financial markets for Democrats who ‘make fun of themselves’ during the debate
During a briefing on a potential health crisis, President Donald Trump blamed a sudden sell-off of shares on a comment from democratic candidates during a debate instead of the risk of a threatened coronavirus pandemic.
Trump, who encouraged Americans to buy shares even after a drop of 1,000 points in the Dow during his trip to India earlier this week, was asked how the disease can affect markets and the economy, with millions quarantined in China and the disease that spreads to Italy and the Middle East.
Trump pointed his finger at his Democratic presidential opponents – not the disease that led him to call top officials to the White House for his first briefing with reporters from the White House briefing room.
President Donald Trump blamed a sudden market slide on “Democratic candidates standing on that stage and embarrassing themselves” – not for fear of a coronavirus pandemic
“I think the financial markets are very upset when they look at the Democratic candidates who stand on that stage and fool themselves and they say that if we have such a president – and there is always a possibility – it is an election, who knows what happens, “Trump said.
Trump added that he thought ‘we are going to win’ and ‘with a lot’.
He spoke hours after seven Democrats in Charleston got up for a debate, with the democratic socialist Bernie Sanders making fire because of his strong performance and polling.
“But when they look at the statements of the people behind those stages, I think that will have a huge effect, yes,” Trump said.
He doubled when asked if he didn’t think the decline – a 7 percent sale – was due to coronavirus.
Trump attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and said that “quite a bit” of the sale came on the market from people who debated to his Democratic rivals. The first democratic debate was in June and the market began to refuel the day before the Charleston debate
“I think the financial markets are very upset when they look at the Democratic candidates who stand on that stage and embarrass themselves,” Trump said

‘I think so. But I think you can add quite a lot of sales to what they see, because they see the potential … I think we’re going to win, I’m very confident, “he said – acknowledging that his theory is partly based on Wall Street to calculate the possibility that he would lose to a democrat.
“I really believe in terms of CNBC and in terms of Fox Business, I really believe that’s a factor, yes, and I think after winning the election, I think the stock market will flourish like it had never started , “Trump said. “The stock market went up the next day like a rocket ship,” he said.
Trump’s unorthodox call came during an urgent health briefing where he made countless partisan shots at Democrats – while also saying he would accept billions more in coronavirus response funds demanding Democrats.
“They can do whatever they want,” he said. “We will be satisfied whatever it is.”
He put forward his signature and controversial border wall, for which he reprogrammed money from defense and other issues. “It wasn’t very easy for the wall, but we did it,” Trump said.
When asked about criticism from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, he fell back by calling the Californian democrat “incompetent” and calling Senator Charles Schumer “crypt” Chuck.
Trump also suggested under Pelosi that Democrats would lose the House again – and he said deposition “had increased my poll numbers by 10 points.”
“She’s trying to cause panic,” Trump said. “And there’s no reason to panic because we’ve done so well.”
Trump also attacked Charles Schumer, leader of the Senate, who demanded the coronavirus response funds Trump asked for three times.
“Instead of making such a statement, she should say that we have to work together because we have a big problem, and maybe it’s going to be a very small problem,” Trump said. “I hope it will be a very small problem, but we must work together. Instead [Pelosi] want to do the same with Chuck Schumer’s crying, “he said and added his usual Schumer’s insult.
“He goes outside and says,” the president has only asked $ 2.5 billion. He should have $ 8.5 billion. “This is the first time I’ve ever been told that we have to take more … and that we have to work together. He shouldn’t make such statements, “Trump said.
“We all have to work together. You can’t say bad things, “Trump said.
During the press, Bernie Sanders, currently the Democratic front runner, sent a statement in which he had sent out Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar, who was present at the White House briefing, because he was during Congress’s testimony had not guaranteed that a coronavirus vaccine would be affordable for everyone.
“Under the Trump doctrine, if you are rich, you can buy a vaccine and not succumb to the disease. If you are poor or working class, you may have to fall ill or even die, “Sanders said. “That’s a shame. That is unacceptable. We need a vaccine that is available to everyone, not just those who can afford it. “
